FICS is not just a competition but a year round program
FICS is a technology based social entrepreneurship forum for students
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the key focus of FICS projects.
A major portion of FICS's success is attributed to the comprehensive industry involvement.
FICS promotes and supports a startup culture and enables projects deployment.
FICS provides a supportive eco-system for students to engage them with industry and churn out brilliant socially viable business ideas.
FICS promotes entrepreneurship and innovation by allowing participants to address the most pressing social and environmental issues at the core of society. More than an annual competition, FICS has proven to be a vast resource of much sought-after solutions.
In a society where nearly everyone is educated with a job-seeking mindset, FICS strives to act as a torch-bearer and identify ideas that can be commercialized and converted into viable entrepreneurial endeavors. Moreover, students through FICS are encouraged to focus their research and innovation to address Pakistan’s issues.

The quality and impact of the projects displayed at FICS have improved over time. The majority of the projects that I see now are oriented towards solving the challenges of society. This program provides a very good opportunity for students and also has a positive impact on the branding of the university. FICS is doing a great job. I wish them all the best.
FICS has come a very long way in terms of helping startups and ideas succeed at a global level. It is a multi-stage program which encourages interdisciplinary innovation. Multi-million dollar ideas could easily emerge from FICS if we engage the industry and accelerate the program.

We became associated with FICS because of its extensive work with the SDGs. Going through the projects amazed us; the outstanding work which had been done by the students without any monetary motivation was commendable. An idea can be taken to a milestone if a certain level of innovation is added into it. I wish you guys the best of luck.

FICS has been very close to my heart ever since I first became a part of it. I served as VP Operations in FICS'18 and initiated the Training and Organizational Development project because I believe that the core principle of FICS is to empower people and ignite the drive in them to do better. FICS, at its core, aims to empower young people and provide them with the motivation and platform to flourish their ideas into practical projects beneficial to society as well as themselves.
Our society, just like all societies, is riddled with its own problems. FICS provides a platform for young minds to think of solutions to existing problems in an innovative way. This is one of those events that truly makes a difference around us and cultivates a much-needed innovative mindset in our society. Working with a team of like-minded and determined individuals to make this event a success was a wholesome experience for me. I am sure that this event will pave the way for future thinkers to become problem solvers and provide them with the resources and mentorship to turn their ideas into reality.
I started off in FICS as the Director Publications. My ideas were both welcomed and encouraged leading to the inception of POSTFICS - the front page of FICS which both inspires idea generation through the numerous articles published on it and keeps participants updated. When I became the VP Media in my junior year, my abilities as a leader were put to the test due to time constraints. However, with the capacity-building we had done through FICS and its nurturing environment, we were able to successfully complete our mission and uphold the image of this platform as one which enables students to make something out of their ideas, pursue practicality, and connect with the industry.
I have been affiliated with FICS almost from the very start. The goal of FICS is to employ the ability, creativity, and imagination of students to find solutions for social problems. If expanded to other universities and executed properly, initiatives like FICS can bring tangible benefits to society.
